A FEW THANKSGIVING TABLES, ODDS AND ENDS

theelegantway.com_.jpg

 

 

I like to browse Thanksgiving tablescapes, even though my table tends not to be overly "themed" for Thanksgiving.

Fun to check others out.

 

1)  A tableside fireplace is certainly a plus!

A turkey figurine is one animal or bird that I don't have.   This one is cute and festive, on its jadeite pedestal, and protected by a glass cloche...

 

2)

Simple autumnal dried flowers on a kitchen work table, nice touch of the season.  Leather-look "stitched" vase is interesting.

3)

Love traditional brown transferware china on a long table, and the casual mix of Windsor chairs with Hitchcock chairs--  no need to be overly formal at this communal feast!

But this intimate meal is just for two, and just as atmospheric.   It also doesn't scream Thanksgiving (although it is).   The burnt orange candles, bowl of apples, and appetizer board of grapes and cheese, make waiting for turkey a fun "bistro" like experience.

5)

Another item that isn't necessarily "Thanksgiving",  is this wicker hurricane, but the chunky texture is so "fall"-- would make a great centerpiece.

But anything can be a centerpiece, including beautiful blue and white Canton ware--  doesn't that blue look great, sparking off the flaming autumn tones of leaves, florals and candles?

But the neat thing is that you can go with what you have, for just as striking a centerpiece.   What could be more simple or effective than a weathered terra cotta saucer, with a glass candlestick inside,  and surrounded by leaves?

8)

A southwestern Thanksgiving table with cacti for a regional twist.   So many Indian and Mexican blankets can bring rich fall tones.

Another unusual display--  antique sideboard with oversize cloches over fall blooms and berries--  striking!

This is so sweet--  the rustic wood slice, with traditional teapot and brass pheasants,  plaid tablecloth--  love!

11)

Very striking mix.  Why do animals of all kinds, seem so compatible with Thanksgiving?

12)

I like the way the tawny woodland-themed china below, plays off the unusual color scheme of purple and blue!   Do you normally prefer traditional colors at the holidays, or "departures"?

13)

Cindy Hattersley always does something interesting and natural.  Her use of these weathered, vintage wicker bottles, reminds me of the woodsy effect of the rattan hurricane a few images back.   Love the equestrian-themed china, which I think is Wedgwood.

And if you decide to take your after-dinner coffee away from the table to the living room, it's nice to have a complementary feeling there, with seasonal bouquets and candles...

If I were lucky enough to have "eat-outside" weather in late November, it'd be hard to tear myself away from this table.  The huge glass bottles filled with leaves, and abundant apples, are all the 'decor' that's needed.

Just lovely, @Oznell.  By the time I got to the last photo, with the elegant white picket fence and the blazing leaves, I could only sigh.  How I love fall...

I want a seat at that welcoming table next to the fireplace...LOVE IT!

I also love the beautiful  table in the outdoors..I request that pretty tealish blue comfortable chair at the end of the table.

My favorite autumn table is anchored by Spode's Woodland pattern. I think I spotted it in one of the photos. I do not know how to post photos. I like it better than their classic Christmas Tree. It can be used from September through Thanksgiving.

@Oznell   All so lovely.  I love Fall. I put tall leaves in my large Delft vase.  It looks a lot like the one in your picture. It sets on a hall tree shelf with a long mirror and it's just so pretty. Really some great ideas here!
